    SO...ok a friend of mine is getting out of the hobby..I picked up a 55 acrylic hex with tons of tiger shrimp..tiger endlers 2 calico bristlenose plecos some rabbit snails, two sunset guramis and this guy..

    I have never really looked in to them I had seen some small ones at my LFS

    ...but WOW...what an interesting "little" fish he is over 6 inches long

    any other info on them would be great! they are in my 40 gallon tall and will be upgraded to a 70 tall shortly.

    ok pics!!!

    here he is in his tank before going in to my 40.

    thank you ^_^ i love odd looking fish..and he was such a a surprise ..didnt even know they got this big.

    thank you!
    the peacock is adorable..picked her up from a friend they have so much personality ..she is still following the whiptail around like a confused thought bubble..its amusing...cant wait to find her a male.

    I thought so to ^_^
